Yesterday, Thunderbird was automatically updated to 91.4.1 on my Windows 10 laptop. Now my gmail accounts fail to authorize. When I start Thunderbird, a splash screen appears "Secure connection failed". The title bar on the splash screen says "Enter credentials for xxxxx@gmail.com on imap.gmail.com" (xxxxx represents my username). There is nowhere to enter credentials as far as I can see. I know for sure that the password I used was correct as I just signed in to gmail using a browser. Please help!

When I would go into Bing, I would go into settings and change from "Moderate" to "Strict"; I would also uncheck "Search Suggestions" so suggestions don't fill in as I type. Then I would click "Save". Until recently, these settings held with no problem. Now after I click "Save" and go back to the main screen in Bing (or come back to Bing after being somewhere else), I'm back to "Moderate" and suggestions fill in as I type. Microsoft claims this is Firefox's issue and needs to be fixed at Firefox's end. Others are posting on Microsoft's answers forums, some also using Firefox, but not all. I love Firefox and I'm not changing to something else, so can you tell me how this Bing issue might be fixed? Thank you.

All I want to do is change my Thunderbird password.

Doing a www search for that topic = every site's information I've found tells one to 1) click on drop-down TOOLS and then OPTIONS (enroute to changing the password), or 2) pull-down MENU and then click on OPTIONS (same story . . . )

Well, there's only one itty-bitty problem: There is NO "OPTIONS" option in at either location.

OK.

So where's the magic? Can only conclude that other people are seeing things I'm not permitted to see . . .

Thank you.

Incorrect Timestamps in Gmail When Using Firefox

For several months I have noticed that the timestamps on my Gmail emails are 5 hours ahead of my actual time, when I use Firefox to check Gmail. These incorrect timestamps do not occur when checking Gmail, using Chrome and other browsers; so it appears to be something occurring only with Firefox.

I communicated with Gmail support staff; and they think it may be due to Firefox's anti-fingerprinting configuration settings that sandboxes the session to the point where the browser has no idea which timezone you are in. The timezone then gets sets to UTC time for everyone, rather than the timezone set on the individual computer.

The only option to get back the correct timestamp in Gmail, using Firefox, is to disable the the anti-fingerprinting value in about:config. However, this then disables other anti-fingerprinting privacy protections.

Is it possible for Mozilla to add an option to leave the timezone out of your anti-fingerprinting configuration settings, as that information is not really giving much privacy info away about anyone?

Please advise, and also let me know if there is a work-around to get my correct timestamp back in Gmail, without disabling anti-fingerprinting in about:config

Thank you for your attention to this matter and any assistance you can provide.

I followed instructions posted on a TB fourm on how to generate an app password in order for my TB to work with AOL. I'm receiving mail in Thunderbird but can't send. I suspect that I may not have followed the instructions completely and would like to start over. Do I need to delete the AOL generated password on AOL and create a new one or just create a new one for the outgoing server? Would appreciate any help! JD

Why and how has Google Search been added to my browser opening page?

Has Google bought Mozilla? or have they donated enough for Mozilla to become a proxy Marketing and user acquisition arm of Google?

This happened on my Windows machine and have read the below too.

Brian Fagioli, reporting for BetaNews:

  • The developers of the Ubuntu-based operating system have agreed to accept an undisclosed amount of money from Mozilla in exchange for making significant changes to Linux Mint. This includes removal of modifications to Firefox and a big change for search. The devs share the upcoming changes to Firefox in Linux Mint 19 and higher.
  • The default start page no longer points to https://www.linuxmint.com/start/
  • The default search engines no longer include Linux Mint search partners (Yahoo, DuckDuckGo...) but Mozilla search partners (Google, Amazon, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Ebay...)
  • The default configuration switches from Mint defaults to Mozilla defaults.
  • Firefox no longer includes code changes or patches from Linux Mint, Debian or Ubuntu.

Can you let me know if the above is correct? Cheers.

Hi- when I open TB, I get the enter password box. I found out today that if I leave blank & then hit cancel or the red X, Thunderbird still opens. How can I change that unless I enter the correct password? The password box opens after that to ask for my pop.gmail.com password, which is fine. I can see that entering that password retrieves new, unread messages & permits me to compose & send new mail, etc....

I have a login but didn't want to have sync issues with an old desktop so turned it off. Now I want to use it again to sync phone and new laptop. I have an email/password but it won't let me in and sets me on a long goose chase ending up with something I need to scan but that scan never shows up. I now have a new account, but can't add a secondary email because "account exists". I need my old account either revived (most preferred option, in that case I want the current account deleted) or, if that is too much to ask for, I want the old account deleted, and I can add a secondary email added to this account. Hope this is clear. Thanks for the help.

I am using Firefox on a MacBook Air with OS 11.6.2 in order to use online banking in Portugal. I need and have generated a Digital Certificate at the bank, but when I try to import it so that the bank with recognize my device it gives me an error messages of " Unable to import this item" and Unknown format in input". I spoke to Apple support already and they suggested that I speak with you first to see if you would know why this problem is occurring. I have been using this computer in the past to access the accounts, but because my Digital Certificate has now expired I am required to generate a new one. I have attempted this 9 times in the last two days without success. I have also spoken with the bank in Portugal and they were not able to determine why I cannot import/save this certificate to my computer. Also the MacBook Air is from early 2014.

I need ONLY MY address saved, not every one that comes through a form. Firefox saves everything it sees and tries to autopopulate everything I do with all of them. I know how to clean the address list, but I work in an address-heavy environment, and if I cleaned it every day autofill would still be useless.

Please, need a switch to STOP saving addresses willy-nilly, but still autofill with those few I have purposely saved.
